  • Life and Biomedical Sciences in Weinheim has well benefited from the Wiley-Blackwell merger. Within the Weinheim offices, Life Sciences is the second biggest editorial department after core chemistry and is thus bigger than physics and material sciences. Together with our colleages from Oxford, Chichester and Hoboken, Weinheim now manages 36+ and journals and plays a leading in the area of molecular and cell biology/biomedicne. EMM can build and thrive on Weinheim’s profound and proven knowledge and experience of launching new products and its innovative approaches to publishing.
  • With the “Biotechnology Journal”, life sciences in Weinheim went down a different path. In contrast to proteomics, as a new emerging field, this venture concentrated on an area, in which Wiley-VCH had a prestigious book programme but no journal. To complement the book programme, we decided to start a topical journal devoted to all areas of biotechnology and which publishes reviews and original research contributions but also features an extensive front piece designed to disseminate biotech relevant news to the public (BTJ Forum) from the industry, from academia and from governmental/regulatory institutions. After many months designing the concept and the layout of the news section and commissioning both scientific and non-scientific contents, we were stunned by the success. Download figures per article exceed most of our mature journals, Medline coverage followed launch within 6 months. After our first country-specific issue on Biotech in China, guest-editors are lining up asking for slots in our publication schedule for their own country. In 2007, we thus published two country issues on Russia and Singapore. Korea is the next in line for 2008. “Talking Biotech with the Public” went crazy with over 400 downloads per article in the first two weeks of publication. A topic which we shall definitely repeat. The “Methods and Advances” issues are so popular, that we shall actually introduce a regular section in every issue to cope with paper flow. Here again, the close proximity of editorial staff, marketing/sales and production together with the new journal launch model was the key to positioning this journal in a well saturated market of biotech publications.
  • Our books cover a broad range of topics in biotechnology: from topics in medical biotechnology to genetics environmental Biotechnology. Here is a small selection of some of our successful titles in the field. As you can see some of our most successful books are on DN Aand gene technology, as well as on stem cell culture methods. There are new editions of our Molecular Biotechnology textbook and principles of gene manipulation and genomics titles In the pastalso published one of the most seminal works on biotechnology. This is a 12-volume series on biotechnology covering a broad range of topics I am happy to say we are planning to relaunch this series and we aim to update and expand this series to current issues in biotechnology made in the field.
  • Here is a small selection of our recently published titled. There is a cluster of books focusing on biotech industry as well as a cluster on plant biology and biotechnology. Of course
